Tempranillo

Tempranillo

Large black grape variety with a tendency to consumed young and becomes more balanced as it ages, reducing its production and improving its maturity. In the area, it provides light floral aromas, liquorice and red fruit which give freshness to medium crianza wines.

Merlot

Outside Bordeaux, in the colder areas such as El Bages, this short-cycle variety will mature with the first cold spells. This gives it more elegance when compared to cultivation in hotter areas, without entering into the greenness of its tannins or its aromatic over-ripeness. On the whole, there are great areas of fresh merlots, with blackcurrant notes and cocoa bottom notes.

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc

With maturity slightly earlier than the Cabernet Sauvignon, nonetheless, a late variety. It has a natural tendency to balance the production due to deficient grape setting, reducing the yield naturally. It gives full-bodied and rich-coloured wines, with notable toffee notes on forest fruits.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Possibly the best adapted grape in the world due to its long cycle. Long maturity in autumn in colder areas (harvests taking place at the end of October in our area) respects the acidity and varietal profile (sweet cherries, black fruit), allowing it remove its herbaceous flavours (green pepper) and giving a creaminess to the tannins which give it a full body.

Syrah

Syrah

Large grape but great colour. Although it has very delicate skin, long maturity until October respects the violet and olive paste characteristics These aromas, together with great body and yet softness on the mouth, make it a very suitable variety for blending.

Grenache noir

A medium-cycle, large-grape variety that generally matures with pale colour. Only very old vines thrive on well-drained, sunny terrain. Very useful for creating sweet notes and

a very fresh aroma (raspberries and even strawberry). Matures fully with high alcohol content and good acidity levels.

Sumoll

The local red variety that has been best conserved in the area. With a medium cycle, a large grape and a medium-high production. Gives pale-coloured but very fresh reds with full-bodied tannins, in the style of continental

wines (more similar to Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo than to Bordeaux varieties). With tannins that are difficult to mature, it has always been considered a good variety for creating rosé wines.
